We had the 130% jib and the main tear while beating our way through 6-8' Buzzards Bay Chop and 18-24 kt winds on a Sabre 28. We limped into port, and repaired the main with sail tape, and spent the night. The next day was bright & sunny with 3' swells and 10kts. The gentleman whose boat I was crewing on had an old beat up working jib which we used to complete our journey.
